This is a question Tightwads

There's saving money, and there's being tight: saving money at the expense of other people, or simply for the miserly hell of it.

Tell us about measures that go beyond simple belt tightening into the realms of Mr Scrooge.

Oh go on then
My ex.. oh bless him, where to start?

I turned 40, a big deal for me, and what did Mr wonderful get me.? Nothing, absolutely zilch. I know he was skint but I only really wanted a card, that he could have borrowed $1 for from his Mum or something. He could have come round and cooked for me, anything. But no.. nothing..

He also always asked to take his wine home from parties with him, even if it had been started on, never mind that he'd got merrily pissed on other peoples drink all night either..

He asked me out for dinner on many occasions, but always leaned on me for my half of the bill..

We went to Paris, and I paid for the flights, but he still got me to pay for my half of the hotel as well..

He learned from the best though, his Dad gave him a pressure washer for christmas, that (I suspect) came free with something else. We were living together at the time, and we had a tiny yard with 3 slabs.. No car.. couldn't think for the life of me what to do with the danged thing..
